Your Girl Probably Isn’t Moaning For The Right Reasons

Your Girl Probably Isn't Moaning For The Right Reasons

As a lady, I occasionally (read: often) find myself faking the big O during a full-blown sexual encounter. Sometimes it’s because I already got there during the pre-game, sometimes it’s because I know it’s not going to happen, and sometimes it’s because I just want the entire thing to be done already. I used the think this was just me…but apparently not.

CNN, in a story entitled “Why Some Make So Much Noise During Sex” took a look at a study published by Gayle Brewer of the University of Central Lancashire and Colin Hendrie of the University of Leeds that examined “copulatory vocalization” in heterosexual women between the ages of 18 and 48. The study found that while many women make noise during sex, but that didn’t automatically mean they were having an orgasm. Instead, 66% of the women surveyed said that they moaned to speed up their partner’s climax, and 87% said that they made noise during sex to give their partner’s confidence a boost.

Looks like I’m in the majority.

According to the piece:

“While female orgasms were most commonly experienced during foreplay, copulatory vocalizations were reported to be made most often before and simultaneously with male ejaculation,” the researchers wrote. Women also reported making noise to relieve boredom, fatigue and pain/discomfort during sex.

Relieve boredom? Ouch. But don’t worry guys, I’m sure that’s not the case with you. You’re totally in the other 34%/13%. Obviously.
